Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is intense and flavorful in every Way. Deep bourbon and oak flavors layer with a strongly intense Jamaican funk. Layered flavor in every way. Exceptional
This is sooo fruity , pineapple and over ripe bananas. Very easy sipping at 59% .Lots of funk thats quite mellow , really enjoyable. With an aftertaste of honey.. I slightly prefer this to their Hampton 2011 , another brilliant Velier offering.
Distilled from estate molasses. Marque: WPL. Aged 10 years in Jamaica. Angel's share >64%. Bottled at 59% ABV (barrel proof). (Of course, all that info, and more, is right there on the bottle!)
I've sampled this a few times now, but still don't have tasting notes. I'll update this after I finally crack open my bottle. Suffice it to say this is a lot like its younger sibling (the 2005), but just a touch richer. There's a good amount of funk, that signature worthy park banana, lots of wood, and a delicious brown sugar/chocolate chip cookie note. Extremely moreish, and probably my favorite rum of 2018 :)
It is simply amazing, balanced, no soooo estered, but complex and tasty ... with very long finish.
If you have tried this then we can assume that you are spending way too much time drinking rum, right?
Not that I would ever suggest that drinking a butt-load of rum is a bad idea and, if you are lucky enough to be drinking THIS rum then stop reading my shit review, close your eyes, lie back and think of England 🏴 🏴☠️
This is very good rum. Much more balanced and somewhat mellowed compared to the Hampden 2010 . ( Which I like..) Long finish and slightly sweet in the mouth. Smaller sips showcase the flavors. I would totally recommend adding this bottle to the cabinet, while it’s still readily available.
Here's another Habitation rum I had to try due to its very high score (9.7 before this review). I just don't get why people like this rum so much. It's way too dry a rum for my liking.
I do, however, like it more than the Habiation Velier 2005 10 year.
Smells and tastes of bourbon, spice, oak, smoke, nuts, and tea. It's just not sweet enough for me to rate higher (sorry if you don't share my rum sweet tooth).
